Frequently Asked Questions


Folliculitis is usually caused by irritation of the skin, such as shaving or wearing tight clothing.

The development of folliculitis can also be caused by the (excessive) use of greasy ointments and oils, which cause a total closing off of the pores, resulting in blockages. In these blockages caused by folliculitis, bacteria or yeasts can also play a major role in the inflammatory phase.

Often there are small red bumps or pimples visible in places where the hair is growing, folliculitis can also cause itching problems.

It is important to take good care of the skin and allow it to breathe. The following tips can help with this:

  • Limit the use of greasy ointments or creams, or replace them for a less greasy variant.
  • Preferably, wear cotton clothing, which is airy and not too tight.
  • Avoid products that contain too much perfume.
  • Try to stay away from the inflammation as much as possible to prevent any damage.
  • Good hygiene and a healthy lifestyle can contribute to the prevention of folliculitis.
